The Canadiens will offer a pregame tribute to late coach Pat Burns just after 7 pm ET. It will be telecast live by Hockey Night in Canada and RDS.
Hockey Night will have memories of Burns to share throughout their telecast, including a special salute by Don Cherry in Coach’s Corner with Ron MacLean during the first intermission. HNIC play-by-play voice Bob Cole, who called most of Burns’s games behind the benches of the Canadiens and Maple Leafs, will have his own memories to share.
In French, RDS will do its usual excellent job with interviews and video remembrances.
